CIVIC INCORPORATION,
In introducing the subject of
the incorporation of Fort Steeie
as a city municipality, the chairman remarked that (here would
no doubt be a difference of opinion as to ils advisability, and it
was desirable that there should
tie a free and full discussion.
Personally he was strongly in
favor of incorporation. Very
likely il would occasion some
slight payment of taxes which
we do not now pay, bul there
would be compensating advantages of far greater importance.
Mr. Mather did nol favor the
scheme, which he thought would
increase taxation.
Mr. Frizzell was inclined lo
agree with Mr. Mather. The
most potent influence against the
progress of a new town was the
dread of taxation, lie believed
that the time had scarcely arrived for a step involving such
responsibility, at leasi he would
like to have further information
before going in for such a move.
There being a call for Mr.
Baillio, he responded by saying
tliat he had looked into the matter of incorporation with .some
care, and was convinced that the
time had arrived for taking the
preliminary steps towards assuming complete municipal control. Still he had no desire of
thrusting liis opinions on anyone, and hoped tliat citizens
would look on the subject from a
standpoint simply of investigation. He had been iu the province for many years and had
watched the inception and progress of many of the municipalities that were now established.
Thero was not an instance, he
believed where the people of the
cities incorporated were not
heartily pleased that they had
taken tlio step they had dono. It
had resulted in benefit all 'round.
There was one thing certain,
namely, that no large and progressive community could possibly exist without municipal incorporation. Such a thing was
without parallel. The question,
then, was: Is Fort Steele to become an Important pluco, or was
it to remain always the hamlet it
had been in the pasty There
was not one citizen that did not
believe in tlie great future in
store for Fort Steele. It now
controlled tlie business of the
district, and they all believed it
would continue to do so. Therefore they must be prepared to
assume the responsibilities which
their importance and growth as
a community entailed, ll hud
been asked what wore tlie advantages to be obtained Iiy incorporation ? lie would cite
those advantages by the experience of a town of which he had
some personal knowledge, Kamloops, When it was proposed
lirst to incorporate that town,
the same objection of increased
taxation had been made tliere
that was now being made here,
only in that case it was tlie owners of tho townsite that objected.
opposod incorporation who has
not changed his mind. And why?
It was fun that nominally they
paid something more in the way
of luxation. But there were advantages that offset this greatly
lo the gain of the citizen, lu
Fort Steele today 5 and li per
cent, was paid for insurance.
With an efficient system of waterworks owned by the city, such
as they had ut Kamloops, the
cost of insurance would be reduced one-half at least, aud an
ample supply of water would be
obtained at only a portion of the
eusl that it now involves or
would involve if supplied by a
private company, The taxation
at Kamloops last year was lli
mills ou the dollar, uud it would
readily be seen that, they had immensely prolitted by incorporation, fur the whole taxation was
met twice over Iiy the reduction
in the rates of insurance and|
water service. There were still
other benefits at the Sister City
of Kamloops, They had there

rales ihan were paid where private companies gave tlie supply,
or where coil oil was tlie lighting material used, as in lhis city.

),000 or $3,500 for the coming
year. We were badly iu need of
sidewalks and street improvements in this city, but we must
continue until incorporated to
tuke up private subscriptions for
these purposes, instead of having tlie use of the §8,500 sent to
the Provincial treasury to erect
expensive departmental buildings in Victoria or elsewhere. If
incorporated we would have to
pay our police officer's salary,
also the salary of a city clerk
and treasurer, and some other
expenses, but theso amounts
would not sum up anything like
what we will have to send to
Victoria, and the balance to our
credit would be substantial.
These views were thrown out for
the consideration of citizens, aud
the whole matter should be discussed from an unprejudiced
standpoint, and with the view-
solely of arriving at tho wisest
conclusion in the interests of tlie
people of the city.
D. L. Bettchen and otlier citizens continued the discussion.
J. L. Litngly was rather opposed
to the proposal, and Mr. Frizzell
gave his experience in American
cities, which did not make him
hopeful of the benefits of incorporation here.
Dr. Watt, thechairiuan, strongly favored the proposal, and was
followed by Mr. Kershaw, who
also wanted to see the city assume municipal government, but
would like to have further knowledge on the subject, and he moved, seconded by Mr. Frzizell,
that tlie meeting adjourn for one
week, when lhe subject would be
further discussed in the light of
additional information.
The motion was carried, and
accordingly a meeting of citizens
will be held iu the Opera House
ou Wednesday evening next to
resume this important discus
sion. It is lo be hoped then
will lie a large attendance of all
those interested.

lift NOTE AND COMMENT.
The morals of the people of
'St. Thomas, Ont., must be at a
very low ebb if any reliance cun
be placed in what is said of them
by the Times of that city: '-It
underlies the life of every section of tho city. If tho main
sower of St. Thomas' social life
wero to discharge its accumulation of filth and scandal, gossip,
shame and infamous smut for ono
brief year upon tho pages of a
daily newspaper, what decent
peoplo thor.s are would hide their
faces in unutterable horror and
disgust. Oli, for the pen of Hall
Caine, such as inspired liis book
The Christian, with which to depict the putrifying moral quicksands whicli underlie the serene
surface of suave, sanctimonious
society, If the secrets which
tho medical men of this city are
perforce entrusted with, if tho
family skeletons with whicli they
come in contact were revealed
and exhibited aud made public,
it would cause a crumbling of
many a family altar, the vanishing of many a home, the destruction of the faith of many a too-
indulgent husband, and the
bringing of gray parental hairs
in shame and sorrow to the kindly shelter of the tomb.''
"According to intelligence from
British Columbia," says London
Money, "the protests made in the
English financial press against
Colonial Ministers 'booming'
Klondyke and other mining companies by allowing their names
to appear on the list of directors
have met with a responsive echo
in public 'out West.' So strong
is the feeling in the Colony
against ilritish Columbian Cabinet Ministers connecting themselves with speculative companies thai their doing so is likely
to have startling political consequences lo tiiem. Attention i.s

average £800 per annum, with
an allowance for travelling,
which seems very poor remuneration for administering the affairs of an important Colony. If
British Columbians do not waut
their Ministers to dabble in speculative companies they should
pay them better."
Scholars differ in opiuion as to
the date at which the books now
found in the New Testament
wore completed, but it is probable that this was accomplished
not later than 180. Many centuries had passed in tlie formation
of the Old Testament, but the
New was all written within a
single hundred years. Tho decision as to whicli books should
bo received into the new canon
was not so quickly readied, for
lho earliest lathers of the church
frequently quote from other gospels, such iis ouo "according to
llie Egyptians,"or "according to
lhe Hebrews," and tho Syrian
Church accepted some books not
received by that of Norlh Africa
or the Western Church, and vice
versa. Thore is a legend that at
lhe lirst ecumenical council of
Nictiea, 825, copies of all the
Christian literature then current
wero laid beneath lhe altar and
the genuine books leaped out of
the mass and ranged themselves
on tlie altar. It probably contains a germ of truth—that at
this convocation it was decided
that tlie books now received wore
apostolic or written under apostolic direction, aud tho others
woro spurious. He this as it
may, the judgment of several
generations of Christians certainly decided upon tho value of
those books as distinguished
from many others written at
about that time or later, and the
Council of Carthage (HUH) is said
to have llxed the canon. The
word canon was first used by
Atlianasius, in the fourth century, in the sense of "accepted"
or "authorized," and Jerome and
Augustine held the present New
Testaments as canonical.

DEFINITIONS AND AXIOMS.
All boarding-houses are the
same boarding-houses.
Boarders in the same boarding-
houses and on tho same flat are
equal to one another.
A single room is that which
lias no parts and no magnitude.
The landlady of a boarding-
house is a parallelogram—that is,
an oblong and angular figure,
which cannot be described, but
which is equal to anything.
A wrangle is tho disinclination
of two boarders to each other
that meot together but aro not.
on the same Hat.
All the rooms being taken, a
single room issaiil to be a double
room.
POSTULATES AMI PROPOSITIONS.
A pie may be produced any
number of times.
The landlady can be reduced
to her lowest terms by a series
of propositions,
A bee line can bo made from
any boarding-house lo any other
boarding-house.
The clothes of a boarding-
house bed, though produced ever
so far both ways, will not meot.
Any two meals at a boarding-
house are together less than two
square meals.
If from the opposite ends of a
boarding-house a line be drawn
passing through all the rooms in
turn, then the stovepipe which
warms the boarders will lie within, that line.
On the same bill and on the
same side of it there should not
be two charges for the same
thing.
If there bo two boarders ou
the same tlat, and thu amount of
side of the ono be equal to the
amount of side of the other, each
to each, and the wrangle bet ween
ono boarder and the landlady be
equal to the wrangle between
the landlady and the other, then
'shall the weekly bills of the Iwo
boarders be equal also, each to
each.
For if not, let one bill be tlie
greater.
Then the other bill is less than
it might havo been—which is absurd.

a little stcry which I find in Mr.
Buckinglnm's book, Hon. Alexander Mackenzie, liis Life and

Ho appliel on ono occasion to
Mr. Mackenzie for a subscription
to a missionary fund and received this reply: "We are expecting ail election bofol'e long,
and it is a rule with me nover to
give, or promise to givo, for
charitable or other purposes
when we aro near au election."
Aftor the election was over Dr.
Clark received from Mr. Mackenzie a substantial cheque for the
missionary scheme. This, I submit, was peculiarly characteristic of Hon. Alexander Mackenzie. Perhaps Mr. MacdonaldEs
instincts would have prompted
him to ji ivo the cheque when
usked for it; perhaps Mr.
Brown's conscience would have
deterred him from giving money
at any time when the gift would
have a sir later look; but I think

'*.*\s a lasl inducement to overcome your obvious reluctance to
meet me again, i will make that
proposition still more favorable,
laus:
••Your profits from your four
greatest battles were $82,000.
Vou made nothing out of your
light with me, for having no
hope of winning you sold your
chance lor the purse for 16 per
eenl. of lhe profits on the verb
scope. Therefore, #82,000 rep-
Bents your reward in gross for
tlie live greatest contests of your
life. Now, this is what I have
lo offer: A purse of #25,000
stands ready lo be offered as a
prize for a mooting in Hie ring
with .vou. To this I will add
#10,000 of my own, conditionally,;
lhat you agree to box me to a'
finish. This makes #85,000, tj
oiler you this entire sum if I fail
to stop you iu lo rounds, with
two provisions, viz:
"I. That the contest must
continue to a finish.
"2, That I shall have something to say in regard to the appointment of a referee.   .
"This is my final proposition,
Tako il or leave il. If you really
want to light, if offers you, If
you want money, a sum is ready
exceeding your gross receipts in
live great battles, If you want
reputation, you can make it bettor by meeting me than by meeting all others together, lf yotl
doubt this, ask the public each
nighl when you exhibit.
••This is my ultimatum. If this,
my lasl offer, will md, make you
meet me like a man, ii is because
your Carson bruises aro still ach
ing so painfully that #35,000 can
not len pi you lo endure Iheir renewal. This is lhe only excuse
you can oiler or Ihal the public
will accept.
"The tree of success is too
hard lo climb, I admit, it may
be that you are satisfied with the
small fruit ripening on the lower
limbs. The greal prize can only
be won by reaching to where my
name was, is and shall be. Bul
whether you will so venture or
not, this, my last challenge to
you—and lo bind which I shall

you accept- remains nailed where
you must sec nud cannot avoid
